of the fema assistance to get people moved or get them rentals. we're working to get more people in these areas, thing rs starting to get in there. but the two priorities are the power restoration to get power back on. we're going to refer back to the utilities. we got some of the equipment today. we're moving equipment from the west coast to the east coast. you can't drive it fast enough, so the departments are now flying utility trucks and crews to the west coast. some began landing this evening. that's going to continue as we bring in more resources to support utilities. >> when you see the pictures, we've seen this in several areas. when you look at the devastation and homes completely gone, homes just ripped off their foundations. is this what you expected or worse? >> no, this is why the evacuation orders were issued. with storm surge, which is what we get with these type of systems, people tend to think of this as what you see from hurricanes like we saw in mississippi and other storms. when this happens, that's the power of that water. it's not going to be like it's flood
by the red cross and fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communicating. a these are areas where there's a lot of poverty and that's something that i

for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yesterday and if he goes out on the stump latter today and attack romney and starts talking about binders and big bird and stuff that. while tens of millions of people are in harmy way that doesn't look presidential. >> i think he will look presidential. it will be a big moment for the president not only for him but our government and fema to be on the main stage. it is it an opportunity for surrogates to mentioned that romney would eliminate fema. the conventional wisdom. low turn out will help romney and obama voters need more motivation to get to the polls times but the reality is we don't know. >> we aren't talk being benghazi and talking about unemployment and the incrose in stod stamps . we are talking about a hurricane. this helps president obama. >> gretchen: and that helps the president, anthony and so what does romney do as everybody is talking about sandy? >> he's doing it. campaign bus is moving people and talking to people and showing leadership and showing change. but it is it difficult to get his message out because it is e
